Today in Maths we are concentrating on cementing our place value knowledge and are looking at partitioning numbers. Think about how we could break a number up into each individual value. For example, in the number 7562 what is the 7 actually worth? We know it is 7000 as it is in the thousands column. So, we would break the number down into 7000 + 500 + 60 + 2 to show what each number is worth. This shows we understand the value of each number. Can you have a go at partitioning these numbers?
1. 4621 (this would be: 4621 = 4000 + 600 + 20 + 1)
Now try and identify the numbers from the below calculations:
11. 7000 + 400 + 30 + 7 (this would be: 7000 + 400 + 30 + 7 = 7437)
12. 3000 + 400 + 0 + 0
13. 6000 + 200 + 20 + 4
14. 8000 + 900 + 40 + 2
15. 0 + 700 + 0 + 4
16. 70,000 + 6000 + 400 + 20 + 2
17. 60,000 + 4000 + 300 + 70 + 5
18. 20,000 + 4000 + 700 + 50 + 0
19. 40,000 + 0 + 400 + 80 + 6
20. 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 7
Today we are having a water safety session with Claire from the Canal and River Trust. Have a go at the activity booklet that they have provided online to see if you know about water safety!
In English we are moving on to look at a different type of poetry this week - narrative poetry. Think back to yesterday when we studied the Dreamtime stories from aboriginal Australians. Do you think they could be made into narrative poems instead of stories? What is a narrative poem? Have a look at the short video below to get some more information on that.
Once you have watched the video, read through the poem 'The Tale of Custard the Dragon' which is below. What do you think about the poem? Share your ideas with a grown up. Then, use a highlighter to work through the poem and highlight any features you spot. These could be rhyming patterns, the use of similes or metaphors or story elements. Then, create a list of features that you think are in a narrative poem. Send your list to me on the class email
Today we have our Drumba lesson, so take this time to do some exercise (if you feel up to it!) or some meditation activities. You could do a PE session with Joe Wicks on YouTube, some Cosmic Yoga or take a walk around your garden. It is completely up to you what form of exercise you do, but remember it is important to keep active whilst at home
Today we are beginning our learning about the aboriginal people in Australia. We are discussing the discovery of Australia and thinking about how this impacted on the people who were already living there in their own tribes with their own traditions and customs. Do some of your own research on the aboriginal people and the discovery of Australia and share your own opinions on how each different group may have felt at the time.
Create your own comic strip of a conversation between the aboriginal people and the English men claiming the land as their own. Send your finished pieces to the class email!
